Myymälä2 in collaboration with Pixelache Helsinki is proud to present RAW - Relational Art Week. 

This year's concept revolves around the challenge of sparing energy in an urban context. During one week Myymälä2's day to day operations and their programme will be carried out without the use of electricity.

Entering the space the public will meet a surreal atmosphere, oscillating between ancient scenery or perhaps anticipation of future situations. For the time they are present at the gallery the public will be gently involved in this experiment.

What is the degree of compromise or radicalization
one is able to accept?

The program does not pretend to solve the emergency related to waste of energy and its negative impact on the environment, nor does it pretend to set an example for others. It is an attempt to delve into the contradictions of the human condition in an interesting and sometimes hilarious or absurd frame.

In absence of phones, electronic cameras and other recording devices generating images through electricity, Myymälä2 has invited selected artists to document the program daily through drawing and painting.
